So, I’m not sure if I “officially” announced it or not, but a while back when we were thinking about joining the Spectrum gym, well, we did. Not only that, but when we joined, we had the option (and when I say “we”, I mostly mean “I”…) to purchase 12 sessions with a personal trainer for half the price they normally charge. I figured, why the heck not? It would be a good way to kick start my anti-flab campaign. (and yes, to those of you rolling your eyes, I do have flab. Being a small size doesn’t mean I’m in shape! 🙂 )
So, Tiffany Trainer (no, her last name is not actually trainer) has been kicking my flabby rear. My arms, right now, they are a burnin’. But, it’s a good burn. We didn’t have a session scheduled for today, so I decided to venture into the world of “class taking”. You know, the group classes they offer. Anything from cycling to yoga to something called Zumba. I’m not sure I will ever take this one. I saw the class going on while on was on the treadmill one day, and the people looked just plain silly. I know the point is to have fun and exercise. But there are ways to do that without compromising my dignity.
I did the yoga flow class today, and it was great! No weird chanting or humming. Just lots of strength poses, and core strengthening. Have I mentioned that I have no core muscles? Yeah… made it challenging. But good.
At the end, my favorite part, is we lay on the mats, totally relaxing our bodies, and deeply breathing. I practically fell asleep. Then, the instructor came around and places lavender scented towels over our eyes, so we were inhaling the lavendar. I think a few people may have dozed off based on the deep breathing going on… but I was almost there too… no room to talk!
I’m definitely going to take this one again. It was great all on fronts, strength training, stretching, and relaxing. Perfect.
